Business Engagement Roundtable

Thursday, 5 September, 10:00-12:00, Manchester

During London Technology Week 2019 the PM announced a study on tech competitiveness. An expert panel was announced to lead the study. The panel members are:


  • Cindy Rose from Microsoft UK
  • Suzanne Ashman from LocalGlobe
  • Stephen Coleman from CodeBase
  • Avid Larizadeh Duggan from Kobalt


The study is focussing on identifying actionable recommendations for strengthening the UK's digital tech start-up, scale-up and SME ecosystem across the following five themes (these themes have been decided on following consultation with the expert panel):


  • Business Environment
  • Tech Ecosystem Infrastructure
  • People
  • Ideas
  • Access to Networks


The study will look at the steps that Government, regulators and others could take to ensure the ongoing competitiveness of the UK's offer. 

We in DIT are looking at the Access to Markets workstream and are now in the phase where we are seeking to consult with as many UK based tech Start-ups, Scale-ups and SMEs as possible. We would like to do this through a series of roundtables.


Join DIT on Thursday 5th September from 10:00 - 12:00, to share your views and discuss how government can improve the effectiveness of support and encourge British businesses to expand into international markets.
